    Not dreaming about elsewhere
     
    Oh beautiful. Antony has a new EP out. He tells Alan Licht about "Another World" in this month's WIRE:
    Antony categorically rejects [the notion that we are only visiting this planet]. "I think we get born out of the earth, this album is like, I was born out of this place, I'm made out of this place. If there is any possibility for paradise, this is it. I'm not dreaming about elsewhere. I'm made of this place."
    I need another place, will there be peace?
    I need another world, this one is nearly gone.
    Still have too many dreams, never seen the light.
    I need another world, a place where I can go.

    I’m gonna miss the sea, I’m gonna miss the snow.
    I’m gonna miss the beach, miss the things that grow.
    I’m gonna miss the trees, I’m gonna miss the sun.
    I’ll miss the animals, I’m gonna miss you all.

    I need another place, will there be peace?
    I need another world, this one is nearly gone.
    Still have too many dreams, never seen the light.
    I need another world, a place where I can go.

    I’m gonna miss the birds singing all their songs
    I’m gonna miss the wind, been kissing me so long.

    Another world
    Another world
    Another world...
